Building the next generation of environmental leaders | Environment

Monday, July 15, 2019 This past weekend, youth from the Kitchener-Waterloo area gathered at the University of Waterloo to identify climate change issues and solutions to combat them. The event, hosted by  Youth Action on Climate Change  (YACC), is a workshop that aims to create a safe space for young people to share their concerns about the environment. Attendants of the event ranged in age from 11 to 25, which the Director of Waterloo Programs, Jenna Phillips, said were "some of the most passionate, intelligent youth [she] had ever met."The Youth Action Climate Leadership Workshop not only gives youth a voice and opportunity to develop meaningful solutions to today’s problems, but it connects them with the notable individuals in the sustainability industry. The workshop featured a talk from Mike Morrice, founder of  Sustainable Waterloo Region . The day also consisted of interactive activities and plenty of brainstorming sessions."The two final issues that the youth chose to address were energy transitions in public infrastructure (shifting businesses, schools, etc. over to renewable energy) and food systems (enhancing local food security). Emily, Tyler and I are taking a few days to reorganize and then we will plan how to move forward with these projects…needless to say, it was a huge success and we look forward to running it again in the future.” – Jenna Phillips. The YACC is local organization that consists of a team of undergraduate and graduate students from the University of Guelph, Wilfrid Laurier, and the University of Waterloo. Members include Emily De Sousa (Founder and Executive Director), Sam Raja (Director of Leadership Development), Jenna Phillips (Director of Waterloo Programs), and Tyler De Sousa (Director of Waterloo Programs).
